WellSpan Health president and CEO Dr. Roxanna Gapstur will join York-based Traditions Bank’s Board of Directors and the board of Traditions Bancorp on Wednesday. 

Gapstur has led the York-based health system since moving to the region in early 2019. She has more than 25 years of health care leadership experience in group practice, academic and integrated health care systems. 

“We are honored to have Dr. Gapstur become part of our leadership. She is an innovative thinker with a demonstrated track record of driving growth and transformation through strategic planning, business development, and operational excellence,” said Eugene Draganosky, president and CEO of Traditions Bank. “In addition to the depth of her experiences, her alignment with many of the bank’s key target markets makes her an outstanding fit for our organization.” 

Traditions Bank opened in 2002 and currently has more than $700 million in assets. The bank operates seven branches throughout York and Lancaster counties and a loan production office in Cumberland County. 

Along with the announcement of Gapstur’s inclusion on the board, Traditions also announced a series of promotions for bank associates this week. 

Suzanne Becker, director of Marketing and Communications at Traditions, was promoted to executive administrative officer and assistant corporate secretary. 

As part of the role, Becker will oversee corporate communications, investor relations, office management, governance support and more. 

Director of Information Technology, Joseph Lombardi, will be taking over the role of chief technology officer. He has more than 25 years of experience in the IT field. 

Justin Mann, the company’s treasurer, will take on the additional role of managing director, managing financial risks for the company including liquidity, interest rate risk and capital. 

“Well-deserved congratulations are in order for all three of these capable leaders,” said Draganosky. “Their expertise, ongoing development, performance, and proven commitment to our core values make them uniquely qualified to serve alongside our other leadership. This is an important milestone for each of them and for our organization as we plan for future growth and succession.”
